Preamplifier at the National Ignition Facility

The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is a laser-based inertial confinement fusion (ICF) research device, located at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California, United States. NIF’s mission is to achieve fusion ignition with high energy gain. It achieved the first scientific breakeven controlled fusion experiment on December 5, 2022, with an energy gain factor of 1.5.[1][2] It supports nuclear weapon maintenance and design by studying the behavior of matter under the conditions found within nuclear explosions.[3]

National Ignition Facility's Basic Layout

The laser pulse is generated in the room just right of center and is sent into the beamlines (blue) on either side. After several passes through the beamlines the light is sent into the “switchyard” (red) where it is aimed into the target chamber (silver).
